If the word “trinity” isn’t in Scripture, why is it such an important part of our faith? And if the Bible can be interpreted in many ways, how do we know what to make of it? And who decided what should be in the Bible anyway? The Church Fathers provide the answers.

D’Ambrosio introduces us to these brilliant, embattled, and sometimes eccentric men who defined the biblical canon, hammered out the Creed, and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation. He dusts off the dry theology and brings us the exciting stories of Ambrose, Augustine, Basil, Athanasius, Chrysostom, and Jerome.
